Penn State Centre Stage presents August Wilson's 'Radio Golf'

August 11, 2011

Penn State Centre Stage will present "Radio Golf," by Pittsburgh playwright August Wilson, from Aug. 24 to Sept. 3 at the Penn State Downtown Theatre. "Radio Golf" is the story of entrepreneur Harmond Wilkes, who is in the running to become Pittsburgh's first black mayor. August Wilson chronicled the African-American experience in the 20th century in his series of plays that stand today as a landmark representation of American history and black culture.

The Penn State Centre Stage production is directed by Jade King Carroll and boasts a seasoned cast that includes Charles Dumas, professor of theatre arts at Penn State. Tickets are on sale at the Penn State Centre Stage box office, Eisenhower Auditorium and the Bryce Jordan Center.
